  1. Similar to what I make except I use turkey drippings and no butter. TFS

    1. I just love the richness the butter gives to it. I would definitely make it with turkey drippings if I had a turkey on hand! (I’ve just never made my own turkey – that’s hopefully changing soon!)

  2. Looks luscious. You really can’t beat real gravy. PS – I actually managed to find turkey broth in the grocery store the other day… I’ll have to see if it is any good.
